Xbasic

{COMMENT}

Syntax

{COMMENT= Text }

Arguments

Text

Character. A freeform text comment.

Description

The {COMMENT} command allows you to place a comment in-line with Xdialog code.

Example 

ui_modeless_dlg_box("Remembered Get", <<%dlg%
<20,3Click Here> | <20,3Or Click Here>
{comment=These buttons do nothing}
%dlg%)
It is easy to add comments to the body of an Xdialog. You just type any comment as you would in a script, by starting the line with a single quote. The single quote must be the first character on the line, and the Xdialog body must include the {removecomments} command on a line by its self. For example:
ui_dlg_box("test",<<%dlg%
{removecomments}
'This is a comment - it won't show up because of the \
{removecomments} command;
{lf};
Name: [.20Name];
{lf};
<10OK> <10Cancel>;
%dlg%)

The {comment=} command was used prior to version 8.
